Britain’s King Charles III is preparing to amend British law to prevent Prince Harry and Prince Andrew, who are on the fringes of the royal family, from standing up for him when he is ill or residing abroad. Local media reported this on Thursday. The Telegraph expects the change “in the coming weeks”. Buckingham Palace has yet to respond.

Under the 1937 law, for certain duties, such as signing official documents, the king could be replaced in his absence by his wife and the first four adults in order of succession to the throne. In the case of King Charles III, it is Queen Consort Camilla, followed by her sons William and Harry, brother Andrew and niece Beatrice.

But Prince Harry gave up his royal duties and moved to the United States with his family. Prince Andrew was then released from office after allegations of sexual assault. Beatrice, the eldest daughter of Prince Andrew, is not an active member of the royal family.

In order to avoid Prince Harry or Prince Andrew having to act as temporary king, especially when Charles with Camilla and Prince William also travel abroad, the list should be expanded, according to various media, according to King Charles III. He would also like to include his sister and brother Princess Anne and Prince Edward. This solution allows Prince Harry and Prince Andrew to be skipped without officially removing them from the list.
